Big Ideas (Don’t Get Any)

Happy Thanksgiving from MNP…Let the machines waltz!

Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don’t get any" I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

Cheryl Dunn’s "Everybody Street"

The photographer and filmmakerACheryl Dunn has been making pictures in the streets of New York for the past twenty years. She's drawn to street shooting because "it is pure and uncontrollable and it takes an intense commitment," she writes in an e-mail. "I feel it reveals a thread in humanity that is random and true and hard to capture." Twelve decades ago, when Alfred Stieglitz first took to the streets with a handheld 4 x 5 camera, he was driven by the same thrilling mix of difficulty and serendipity. "My picture 'Fifth Avenue, Winter' is the result of a three hours' stand during a fierce snow-storm on February 22nd, 1893, awaiting the proper moment," Stieglitz wrote in 1897. "My patience was duly rewarded. Of course, the result contained an element of chance, as I might have stood there for hours without succeeding in getting the desired pictures."

This fall, the Seaport Museum New York pays tribute to Stieglitz's New York work in a show fittingly titled "Alfred Stieglitz New York." To accompany the exhibit, the curators commissioned Dunn to make a new documentary about photographers who have used New York City street life as a major subject in their work. "I chose people who have an innate desire to walk the streets and take pictures that cannot be suppressed, and have done this for a long time," she writes. Here's a first look at the trailer for Dunn's film, "Everybody Street."

George Lucas Stole Chewbacca

The creation of Star Wars is comprehensive mythology onto itself, populated by rarely documented anecdotes, the likes ofA"the Millennium Falcon was inspired by a hamburger, with the outrigger cockpit being an olive off to the side" (1)AorA"My original inspiration for Chewbacca was my dog Indiana." (2), compelling enough to be repeated until they're so prevalent that theyAmust be true, and are accepted even by hardcore fans and Lucasfilm itself. Unfortunately sometimes they're embellished truths or half-truths, sometimes entirely false and in pretty much all cases oversimplifying a truly interesting, and luckily exceptionally well documented creative process.

And that's what this is about; the creative process. Cultural touchstones like Star Wars might seem to have sprung fully formed from the minds of their lauded creators, but as in all creative endeavors, movie making, web design or this very post, nothing could be further from the truth. Creation is a process, and strangely, by looking at how everyone's favorite plushy first-mate sprang into existence, we can learn a lot about any collaborative creative endeavor.

Unfortunately, perhaps because of the verisimilitude of the disciplines needed to make a film like Star Wars come together, the making-of narrative is surprisingly fragmented and often incomplete. A quick look at the bibliography needed to put together this post should give a good idea of justAhow fragmented. And once you're down the rabbit hole, you quickly learn that nothing found there can be taken at face value. Quotes, drawings, photos and diagrams lack sources, are undated, some old, some new, some so distorted as to be pure fiction and most of it entirely out of context.
